LIFI WIRELESS MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK

A high speed bidirectional networked and mobile communication of data using light

02

LiFi (Light Fidelity) turns the existing lighting network into a high speed mobile communications network.

LiFi allows the repurposing of light for communications as it uses the same infrastructure, it also comprises of multiple light bulbs (LED) that form a wireless network. LED lights are already widely spread and efficient, LiFi gives them another purpose, connectivity. The wireless communications network offers an unprecedented opportunity for connectivity within hospitals and healthcare facilities because it does not emit electromagnetic interference and therefore does not interfere with medical equipment. Lights could connect households to the internet faster and more securely than router could, as well as powering connectivity for lights that illuminate offices, cars and streets. LiFi is significantly more secure than other wireless technologies because light can be contained in a physical space. The lighting network thus has a triple function: lighting, data network, mobile communications network.
